Default Bricked CM11 4.2.2

I flashed CM11 to my GS3 the other day, through the CyanogenMod website its been working flawless ever since. But I have found out that my battery life is horrible, so looking upon threads I find that I could install a Kernel such as Boeffla, I was talking to someone about it and asked him if my steps were fine, I went to boeffla and downloaded the CM11 stable kernel V2.2. I boot into recovery mode, go to install from SD card storage go to find Boeffla and install it. After being installed it says reboot now! I go to reboot only to find out my phone will not power up. I can connect it to my windows computer and it recognizes it as something, but not my GS3. Which gives some help, could someone please help me soon!

I dunno if this is possible to unbrick my GS3 from a rom running 4.4.2?

That kernel is not for the Sprint variant of the GS3. Will it get into download mode? If so ODIN may save you.

If it won't boot up, only way to fix it is to get a new phone or send off for JTAG service.
I'd recommend because I've used them before.
